Amazing, amazing, amazing!!! We spent the entire day, well into the evening! Just a note, get there early to claim a fire pit!! It is just picture perfect! The beach is a slight hike away. There are restrooms and showers to clean up in, though. The best part is the view! You can see our great city as well as the majesty of Lake Michigan! Completely peaceful. The parking is not bad at all, as long as you pay attention to your times. It is tuly wonderful! I cant wait to go back!
The most magical park in all of Chicago. Plenty of shade and sun, fire pits, cute groups of people just enjoying being outdoors and being together. In warm weather you can unofficially swim there (no lifeguards). I almost don't want to post about this place because it's so fantastic.
